The day that we must celebrate the main men in our lives takes place on Sunday 21st June. From workout gear endorsed by warriors to whiskey gummies, grooming kits to CBD treats loved by athletes, we know what will make him feel good this Father’s Day…
For the sporty dad
You can’t go wrong with a classic lululemon jumper this Father’s Day. The City Sweat Zip Hoodie French Terry’ (£108) is soft with breathable fabric and comes in black, white, grey and navy. Grab yourself a bargain and go for ‘green haze’, which is on offer at £64 – they made too much apparently. Designed for when he’s on the move, the added lyrca gives this hoodie shape whilst hidden pockets are perfect for carrying his phone and wallet.
Under Armour Training Top
Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has partnered up with Under Armour to launch the ‘Project Rock’ collection. This Project Rock Charged Cotton Tank (£36) has the comfort of cotton, but dries much faster. Mesh side panels add breathability and stretch whilst dropped armholes allow for extra mobility and range of motion – perfect for all those home workouts.
Designed for beginner stand up paddlers, this Inflatable Stand-Up Paddle Board (£349) makes for a great companion if he is wanting to try something new this summer. Stable and easy-to-handle, this SUP is great for practising on calm waters and small waves. Fitted with a leash that can be tied around his ankle or knee, he’ll be sure to stay on the board in case of a fall.
For the groomed dad

Issey Miyake Men’s Fragrance
You can’t go wrong with this classic men’s fragrance from Issey Miyake. L’eau D’issey Pour Homme (£47.50) is based on marine essences. An “electric” scent that is supposed to replicate the smell of a brooding thunder storm with precious spices, woods and notes of juniper, bergamot, lavender, sage and coriander. It’s essentially a gift for you as well.
Gillette Razor Set
He will be able to wash, trim, shave, groom, tame, shape, style and pamper his beard with the King C. Gillette Ultimate Beard Trim & Care Kit (£49). The perfect gift set to cover all his grooming needs, this beard grooming gift set features a beard shampoo and face wash, Braun-powered beard trimmer, transparent shaving gel, specially designed neck razor and a nourishing beard oil to complete his daily beard care routine.
For the hedonistic dad
LOVE HEMP CBD Chocolate
Treat him to some dark chocolate balls (£9.99) infused with CBD (cannabidiol) rich hemp extract to leave him feeling calm and collected. 100% THC free (so there’s no high!), rich in a full spectrum of natural cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and phytonutrients – this is a chocolate treat that is sure to take the edge off. They’re also a great post-workout snack, loved by athletes such as Georges St-Pierre, a Canadian professional mixed martial artist (MMA) world champion.
Smith & Sinclair Cocktail Gummies
If you’re sick of getting him the same old bottle of Whiskey, introduce a fun, new and innovative way for him to enjoy his special malt with these Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies (£15) from Smith & Sinclair. The ‘Whiskey Club’ collection contains x4 Bourbon Old Fashioned gummies garnished with Orange Sugar, x2 Whiskey & Ginger gummies garnished with Ginger Sugar. x2 Manhattan gummies garnished with Cherry Sugar and x2 Whiskey Sour gummies garnished with Lemon Sugar. Each gummy holds a subtle kick at 5% ABV. Five and he can’t drive.
Waitrose ‘The Bestsellers Reds Case’
Does your Dad love reds? These bestsellers will always impress. This 12-bottle case from Waitrose (£90) features red wines that fellow Waitrose customers adore. Inside he’ll find silken Tempranillo, Chilean favourite Carmenère and a generous French country classic.
The Wine Workshop x Passione Vino
The Wine Workshop is joining forces with Passione Vino, the renowned Italian wine shop and bar based in Shoreditch, that specialises in small and independent Italian artisan winemakers, for their second Italian wine and food pairing workshop. The event will be taking place just before Father’s Day on 19th June, perfect for anyone looking for something a bit more special to treat their father’s to this year, that can be enjoyed from the comfort of home.
